The time of year has come where our聽radiators get turned on, we bust out the storm windows and layering before you step out of your house is necessary. Bring your winter coats to the dry cleaners ASAP, because snowy stuff is right around the corner. The colder it gets outside, the less likely you鈥檒l want to venture out in the frozen tundra (and probably end up ordering too much takeout).聽That鈥檚 why you need to get your home front ready for nights inside for the chilly months to come.

Whether it鈥檚 in the kitchen, living room or bedroom, you need to have the proper supplies to get you through without聽the shivers. Treat yourself to a new cover for your winter blanket, make sure your mug selection is ready for many a hot chocolate, have plenty of throws for your couch and storage for all of your winter gear. Here are some must have additions to聽get your pad聽winter ready.


1. Blankets Made for Couch Coziness: You鈥檒l be spending most nights Netflix and chilling because the weather outside will be for-real frightful. Extra throws are a must, so why not have one with designs that will make your couch pop? This聽Dusen Dusen Stripe Throw Blanket ($180) fits the bill.


2. Boot Tray to Protect Your Floors From Slush:聽Who said that boot trays have to be boring and all rubbery? This聽signedandnumbered Reclaimed Wood Boot Tray ($75) is an Etsy gem that protects your floors from harsh salts and yucky snow while still looking rustic and modern. It鈥檚 a total find.


3. Tech-Friendly Slow Cooker for Ready-Whenever Meals:聽Slow Cookers are one-pot meal saviors year round, but especially during the winter when chilis, soups and hearty meals are on weekly menu rotation. Make winter living even easier this year with one that connects wirelessly to your phone. This high-tech slow cooker聽lets you control its temperature and cooking time while you鈥檙e on the go, aka shoveling snow for your car.


4. An Anything-but-Boring Duvet:聽The brightness of your summer bedroom doesn鈥檛 have to go away once the clocks change. Bring the breezy, chill vibes to the bedroom with an airy duvet, like the聽Wandering Star King Size Duvet Set ($240). This beaut is hand printed and fair trade, and gets softer after every wash, which makes your bed 鈥 or anywhere the duvet touches 鈥 the ultimate comfort zone.


5. Not Your Mother鈥檚 Humidifier: Gone are the days of the giant, bulky humidifiers of our childhood (who has the space for that in their apartment anyway?). Snag a more modern option like this small but effective聽11+ Bottle Humidifier ($90). This eco-friendly gadget works great in any bedroom-sized room, not just practically, but also decor-wise 鈥 it鈥檒l completely blend into your scheme聽thanks to its sleek design 鈥 and is easily recharged via a USB port.


6. Chic Storage for Winter Accessories:聽Too many gloves, hats and scarves get lost through your house over the cold months when you need them most. This season, keep them all together in this cute, easy-to-move聽Eliza Gran Pom Pom Venice Basket ($88). When it鈥檚 time to stash the cold聽layers, use the catchall for other organizational needs 鈥 it might be the prettiest laundry basket we鈥檝e ever seen or a really next-level planter.

8. Next-Level聽Teas for That Pot: Face it, you鈥檙e a little聽sick of the typical peppermint, green or earl grey tea you鈥檙e so used to. Plus, that coffee shop around the corner will seem light years away once it gets below zero.聽Step your home tea game up by trying this聽Kombucha Brooklyn Tea Sampler聽($12)聽variety pack sure to please roomies and holiday guests alike.
